e-waste collection drive in St. Marys

St. Marys Journal Argus

Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario’s Stratford ReStore, in partnership with the Town of St. Marys and in support of the St. Marys Youth Centre, will be performing an e-waste collection drive on Saturday, Oct. 25. The purpose of the effort is to assist the St. Marys Youth Centre with fundraising and also to heighten awareness and emphasize the importance of proper disposal and streaming of electronic devices — keeping these useful items out of landfill and in proper recycling streams.

This effort is supported by funds from the Stratford-Perth Community Foundation.

“The Town of St Marys puts a high priority on building a complete and healthy community, and this e-waste initiative reinforces that goal by encouraging people to recycle items from the most rapidly growing segment of the municipal solid waste stream,” explains a news release about the Collection Drive.

The pick-up will take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., followed by tallying of collection materials at the Pyramid Centre. To arrange to have your e-waste picked up, contact Stratford Restore at 519-273-7155 or ReStore.Stratford@habitat4home.
